    Oh how it always amazes me how God puts people in our path for a reason. What a beautiful story of love and out reach inso many different ways. God bless you both and the quilt is so beautiful as is the friendship you have developed.

    It was well worth the "risk" that you took ... though you sure had me puzzled at the Post Office!!!
    I kept questioning myself, as I was sure I had not given you my address, and yet here I had a parcel.
    How could that be??
    It kept me going for a bit, and alas! before I was told, I figured out our special friend was part of the intrigue!!!

    BTW ... I don't think you explained the quilt's name "Ayubovan" .... does anyone want to know?

    Yes, this piece is so perfect and deserves a ribbon, which is a great story - but the BEST part of this story is the friendship and caring between two people. Stories like this selfless-ness need to be shared - reminds us that there IS good and hope out there in the world. You guys are great (and so is the quilt!)

    Amazingly beautiful mini quilt. I can't even do a decent job on 1" squares! Both of you ladies are an inspiration.

    What a beautiful work of loving art. I just spent two hours reading only a fraction of the Shi Lanka site. I still have more to read, it's very inspiring. Thank you for the post.

    What a wonderful story! It's so heartening to read of two friends who connected through a quilting board and have reached out to one another all in the name of friendship. Congratulats to both of you! The quilt is gorgeous!

    Ayubovan is the traditional greeting in Sri Lanka, you say it with your hands held together in front of your chest and a little bow. It means "long life"
